I have been wondering recently about the tradition of playing/performing Schenkerian graphs at the piano. It's an idea I've heard about several times, and one I associate with the direct students or 'grand-students' of Schenker. However, I can't recall ever having seen it discussed explicitly in print. Can anyone recall references to playing Schenker graphs in published articles or books?
[Incidentally, what brought this most recently to mind is the fact that Lewin insists repeatedly throughout his Morgengruß essay that his readers should be sure to play through his reductions. He's not speaking from a Schenkerian perspective -- and in fact distances himself from it -- but it got me wondering about what the state of Schenker pedagogy looked like in 1970s and 80s, and if it's documented in print anywhere.]
Thanks in advance,
